HC Deb 12 December 1955 vol 547 c150W
Mr. Chichester-Clark

asked the Postmaster-General how long he expects the conversion of the manual exchange at Coleraine to automatic working to take: and what area it will then cover.

Dr. Hill

The conversion is expected to take place in 1959. The new exchange will serve the same area as the present one; but subscribers will also be able to dial direct to numbers on Portrush and six other nearby exchanges.
